Doug’s family also deserve a mention I suppose!! Margaret and & John – his parents – are serial renovators…..they will never get sick of their house – they can just change it!
John won a travel scholarship to Denmark as a young, architecture student, Margaret went with him and the pair of them have never looked back.
They came home and built this Danish-style courtyard house, in Edinburgh, completing it just as Douglas was born.
For Margaret and John Scandi-style is not just a look – it is a way of life!!
They have been working on their home for 48 years now, adding extensions, moving the kitchen…..they never stop – one minute it is a bedroom, next time you turn up it’s a bathroom – you could get quite dizzy!
It is actually John’s 80th birthday next year – I wonder which room we will be celebrating in??
